LOS ANGELES, Calif. -- Following a night of outbursts and antics that got her thrown out of the Directors Guild Awards on Saturday, Access Hollywood has learned that Sean Young admitted herself to rehab on Monday.
"Actress Sean Young voluntarily admitted herself yesterday (Monday, 1/28) to a rehabilitation center for treatment related to alcoholism. It is understood that Young has struggled against the disease for many years," a rep for the actress said in a statement to Access.
While Julian Schnabel, director of "The Diving Bell and the Butterfly," was speaking onstage at the DGA Awards, Sean, decked out in a white fur coat, began to heckle Schnabel, reportedly yelling, "Get on with it!" and "Move it on!" She also reportedly yelled at a video clip of George Clooney and had an outburst in French directed at Marion Cotillard.
Young rose to fame in the late 1980's and early 1990's appearing in films such as, "Cousins," and "Ace Ventura: Pet Detective."
More recently she has appeared in episodes of "One Tree Hill," "ER" and "CSI."
